devolo hits 30 million Powerline sales as connected home demand increases
Powerline manufacturer devolo reports that it has reached worldwide sales of over 30 million adapters for home networking.
The company, based in Germany, connects millions of households across the world by means of its dLAN® technology, with an increasing number of customers relying on its easy Powerline networking capabilities to connect mobile devices, computers and smart home technologies.
dLAN Powerline adapters allow users to boost the availability of internet access by using a building’s existing electrical circuit to transmit data. Any plug socket can then be turned into a network access point with the help of an adapter and, in the case of models with WiFi functionality, a new WiFi hotspot.
Commenting on the latest sales figures, devolo CEO, Heiko Harbers said: “We are delighted with the trust that users place in our products and the way this is driving the market of home networking.
“With 30 million dLAN products shipped, we have reached a new milestone in the history of devolo AG.
“This success once again proves that our recipe works: long term and stable growth paired with innovation and an open corporate culture.”
Supported by a hub of more than 90 engineers, devolo boasts the largest Powerline development team in the world.
dLAN adapters have successfully been used by customers to connect computers, smart TVs, games consoles and even home offices and outbuildings to the internet. Recently, devolo expanded into the smart home market with the launch of Home Control. The new range of products includes devices for adjusting light settings, monitoring temperatures and providing automated security alerts.
